    just fine, but just the other day when i got it started turned the air
    conditioner on the hole car shut off......when i turned it off & restarted it
    worked fine....
    my friend replaced all the spark plugs & even the air filter, but still
    having the same problems....i even went & bought fuel system cleaner to help
    but so far nothing....
    then when i tried today to start my car now i cant even keep it started just

    the backfiring noises but it doesnt even wanna stay started at all....any

    Start with the basics, have the fuel pressure tested.

    The fact that it smells like rotten eggs indicates that the catalytic
    convertor is plugged and thus needs replaced anyway, plus that would
    likely produce the symptoms it has, such as wanting to die, etc.
    A reputable muffler shop can test the pressure before and after the
    catalytic converter to determine if it's plugged or not, usually do this
    free of charge. If it is plugged and you replace it, the other problems
    may well disappear.

    Possible fuel pump or regulator 175 to 400 depending on area and diagnosis.
